I've been using a preview version of Chrome for about a month and it's been sooooo buggy. Until about a week ago. Suddenly things were running smoother, much like they did when I was on Windows.
Then, the tech blogs started swirling with rumors that Chrome for Mac would be released into Beta this week. I figured the rumor was solid, and it was. Chrome for Mac and Linux has, indeed, been released into beta.
I installed it but didn't notice too much difference - because, as I said, things had been running more smoothly lately. What I like about Chrome is how much screen space you get because the Tabs are running in the, um, chrome above the toolbars and address bar - where normally you have a bunch of wasted space.
Chrome has lacked extensions, but that's another new announcement today. Extensions have been launched into beta, as well. But not for Mac. That's something Apple fanboys will still have to wait for.
